Weekly Report 10 Mar 08

Post by Brad » Mon Mar 10, 2008 12:07 pm

Howdy to all from Stanage Bay, Shoalwater Bay, The Duke Islands & the Percy Isles. Well we all wanted it, the rain that is and that's exactly what we got. In all up here we gratefully received aprox 25 inches. The water up the sound was like tea. The Crabs are hit and miss - I think they are trying to miss the fresh. It may be hurting now, but believe me, all should be humming in the future. The Road: well I have been getting mixed reports. Two fellas just came over it towing a 6 mtr boat ( a nice one too), and said they thought it was pretty good. Everyone is different and has different opinions of the road. I honestly think it would be a challenge to those not used to unsealed roads, especially after good rain. We are hoping the council will run a grader over it before Easter - who knows now with the amalgamation of councils (more buck passing)

The Stanage Bay Annual Fishing Competition: We had our Fishing Comp meeting yesterday and all went well.
